Abstract: Robots are now moved from research laboratory into our everyday lives, they are used to support people in daily activities. Specific humanoid robots are used to provide help with some physical activities. In the past efforts were made to construct a full-bodied humanoid robot. Due to advances in electronics technology humanoid robots, such as ASIMO, NAO & HUBO are developed. These developed robots have successfully demonstrated behaviours, such as walking, running and dancing. For interaction of humanoid robot with humans various kinds of technologies such as speech, gesture and skeleton are used. In the area of gesture recognition several different approaches have been established using different input devices and learning algorithms. Currently the robotics field is undergoing many changes. Over the past, robots were used in factories for manufacturing different products and transportation of products. Now in new generation we are having robots which can do the desired task called as “service robots”. Service robots can cooperate with people and serve them in day to day tasks. This paper aims to conflate the above conception of humanoid robot with MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) accelerometers to attain ease in accuracy and control. This humanoid robot will perform activity according to the position of the MEMS accelerometer.
